Hello CCLA Members,

During the recent annual Columbia Coaching Learning Association Annual & 4th Quarter Boar of Directors Meeting, we identified strategic priorities for the 2016/2017 Fiscal Year (CCLA Board President Sharon Dauk, CCCP - Cohort 2, will provide more details shortly). One of the priorities is to design, develop and implement a "Coach Referral" service where we partner with organizational clients to promote coaching opportunities. We are piloting this idea with a few corporate clients as we speak.

A part of this initiative is to provide a platform for alums of the Columbia Coaching Program to share coaching opportunities with each other. Until we have a more formal coach referral process, with explicit tools, resources and guidelines, we encourage alums to share leads via this discussion thread. Our experience suggest that providing a clear set of requirements enhancing the quality of responses from the Columbia Coaching Community to help to facilitate effective coach-client matching.

Below are two links, of sample "Client Coaching Opportunities" communications posted on the CCLA professional social networking site:

  • Great idea, Terry!  Looking forward to seeing what opportunities come through this new channel.  I am in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area now, so if anyone becomes aware of any coaching needs down here, please let me know.
